[quote]Bunch of NFL busts right there[/quote]
I will always argue that JaMarcus was not a bust.
for one, busts are usually guys who get labeled great in part because they're constantly telling us they're great, like Bosworth, and I doubt I've even heard JaMarcus speak more than 5 times.

[quote]LSU had the worst QB to take a snap in a January bowl game in 2012. [/quote]
I've argued before that, considering he was a 4-year starter, 9 was actually the worst college quarterback of all time. its between him and Reggie Ball, and their numbers in key areas are appallingly close.

I know this is random, and maybe everyone here already knew it, but I just read tonight that the '86 Final Four team had a JV team coached by Tex Winter.
Winter, of course, was Phil Jacksons assistant for all 9 of his NBA titles with the Bulls and Lakers. those teams all ran the triangle offense...

well, yeah, it does. a lot. we need one guy getting as many reps against as many first team defenses as possible. that's the only way a new starter, maybe even a true freshman, will be ready for second half of the schedule.
